An agency’s affirmative procurement program must include: (1) A recovered materials preference program and an agency promotion program for the preference program; (2) a program for requiring estimates of the total percentage of recovered materials used in the performance of a contract, certification of minimum recovered material content used, and where appropriate and reasonable, verification procedures for estimates and PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20339 certifications; and (3) annual review and monitoring of the effectiveness of an agency’s affirmative procurement program. For items the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated as produced or that can be produced from recovered material, agencies are required to track the percentaage of recovered material content used during contract performance. This requirement applies whenever an acquisition sets forth minimum percentages of recovered materials; when the price of the item exceeds $10,000; or when the aggregate amount paid for the item or functionally equivalent items in the preceding fiscal year was $10,000 or more. Pursuant to FAR clause 52.223–9, when the contract requires the delivery of or use of an EPA-designated item, contractors shall report the estimated percentage of total recovered material content delivered or used, at contract completion. The clause is included in solicitations and contracts exceeding $150,000, except for acquisitions of commercially-available, off-the-shelf (COTS) items. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 1,047.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Cecelia L. Davis, Procurement Analyst, Acquisition Policy Division, at 202– 219–0202 or email cecelia.davis@ gsa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose Part 28 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) contains guidance related to insuring against damages under Federal contracts (e.g., bonds, bid guarantees, etc.). Part 52 contains the corresponding provisions and clauses. These collectively implement the statutory requirement for Federal contractors to report payment bonds under construction contracts subject to 40 U.S.C. chapter 31, subchapter III, Bonds. This information collection is mandated by Section 806 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 1992 and 1993 (Pub. L. 102–190), as amended by Section 2091 of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 (Pub. L. 103–335). The clause at 52.228–12, Prospective Subcontractor Requests for Bonds, implements Section 806(a)(3) of Public Law 102–190, as amended, which states that, upon the request of a prospective subcontractor or supplier offering to furnish labor or material under a construction contract for which a payment bond has been furnished pursuant to 40 U.S.C. 31, the contractor shall promptly provide a copy of such payment bond to the requestor. Given that payment bonds, in conjunction with performance bonds, are used to secure the contractor’s obligations, thereby assuring that payments are made to subcontractors and vendors under the contract, the requester will use information on payment bonds to determine whether to PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 engage in business with that prime contractor. B. Annual Reporting Burden Number of respondents: 4,444. Responses per respondent: 2.5. Total annual responses: 11,110. Hours per response: .34. Total burden hours: 3,777. Frequency: On occasion. Affected public: Construction prime contractors. C. Public Comments Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    OMB clearance 9000-0134 supports the information collection 
requirement contained in 52.223-9, Estimate of Percentage of Recovered 
Material Content for EPA-designated Items. Section 6002 of the Resource 
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Public Law 94-580, (42 U.S.C. 
6962), requires Federal agencies to develop affirmative procurement 
programs to ensure that items composed of recovered materials will be 
purchased to the maximum extent practicable. An agency's affirmative 
procurement program must include: (1) A recovered materials preference 
program and an agency promotion program for the preference program; (2) 
a program for requiring estimates of the total percentage of recovered 
materials used in the performance of a contract, certification of 
minimum recovered material content used, and where appropriate and 
reasonable, verification procedures for estimates and certifications; 
and (3) annual review and monitoring of the effectiveness of an 
agency's affirmative procurement program.
    For items the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated 
as produced or that can be produced from recovered material, agencies 
are required to track the percentaage of recovered material content 
used during contract performance. This requirement applies whenever an 
acquisition sets forth minimum percentages of recovered materials; when 
the price of the item exceeds $10,000; or when the aggregate amount 
paid for the item or functionally equivalent items in the preceding 
fiscal year was $10,000 or more.
    Pursuant to FAR clause 52.223-9, when the contract requires the 
delivery of or use of an EPA-designated item, contractors shall report 
the estimated percentage of total recovered material content delivered 
or used, at contract completion. The clause is included in 
solicitations and contracts exceeding $150,000, except for acquisitions 
of commercially-available, off-the-shelf (COTS) items.

C. Public Comments

    Public Comments are particularly invited on: Whether this 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
functions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and whether it 
will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden 
of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid 
assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can
